In recent years, there have been some reports of performance issues when using Microsoft Teams on low-end Windows devices. More users have agreed to their feedback and it seems pretty clear at the moment that Microsoft Teams is not optimized for all low-end configurations.
In a new status update on the community forum, Microsoft confirmed that it is considering performance improvements for the Teams desktop client to reduce RAM and CPU usage.
Microsoft simply stated that it is working on performance improvements and that no details have been provided.
It’s no secret that Microsoft Teams isn’t optimized for all configurations, and it feels laggy on HDD devices, according to various user reports. It is unclear what causes performance issues, but it has finally been confirmed that this is something the company is well aware of.
New offline experience
In addition to performance improvements, Microsoft Teams also gets a new feature that keeps users connected without an active Internet connection. The new experience is called “Offline” mode and will be rolled out in the coming weeks.
This new offline mode is designed for both Microsoft Teams desktop and web clients. As part of the phase one rollout, Microsoft Teams will automatically send the messages within 24 hours as soon as you’re connected to the Internet.
Currently, messages aren’t delivered when your device is disconnected from an active Internet connection. When this happens, users are prompted to try again and delete the messages.
After the new offline mode update, Microsoft will queue these unsent messages for up to 24 hours. If your message hasn’t been delivered for more than 24 hours, you’ll need to resend the message.
At the end of February, you can also edit the unsent messages so that your colleagues will receive the last message.
